Srilankan doctor faces trial over husband’s death

Australia: Doctor accused of murdering her husband during a domestic dispute in Western Australia’s Mid West region will stand trial in November. Chamari Rasika Denuwanthe Gunathilaka Liyanage, 34, has pleaded not guilty to killing her husband, Dinedra Athukorala, who was also a doctor at Geraldton Health Campus.

Dr Athukorala, who is understood to have been from Sri Lanka, could not be resuscitated after police found him injured at a Shenton St property on June 24, 2014.

Liyanage formally pleaded not guilty to his murder in the Supreme Court of Western Australia via video link from Greenough Regional Prison on Thursday. The court heard mental health experts would be called by the defence during her trial, which is scheduled to start in Geraldton on November 9.

Liyanage was remanded in custody to appear in the same court in August for a status conference. (PTI)
